Guest Room Makeover: Navy + Teal Mood Board { +Before Pics}

Guest Room Navy + Teal Mood Board

It all starts with an idea...

With our house still in that "newly wed" stage, there are plenty of rooms to choose from to put our stamp on. I like to start with the quickest projects because I know there is a higher chance I'll reach a finished product. As I am still putting some finishing touches on our first guest bedroom (check out the progress here, here, here, and here), I'm ready to tackle the second guest bedroom. You might be thinking, "What's with all the guest rooms?" Well, with just me and the hubby taking up one room and three other rooms left to fend for themselves with furniture of homes past, we decided being away from friends and family warranted the "need" for two guest rooms. 


Color Scheme...

I'm obsessed with shades of blue! My favorite is navy and my second favorite is teal. Since, at the moment, there are no other rooms with this color combo, I decided to start there. Of course, my first place for inspiration was Pinterest. You can take a look at my Pinterest mood board here for this project. It's chalked full of awesomeness that I hope to mix in this space.

The rest of my inspiration came from research. It's hard to get out to every one of the stores I love with so many things going on, so that's where my online research comes in. Inspiration usually hits me from Wayfair, Target, Pier 1, and a bunch more (check them all out here). The places I make sure to actually go in to no matter what are Home Goods and Hobby Lobby. These stores are constantly changing, so their true items must be seen first hand. And I'm obsessed. Every time I walk into either of these places, I am instantly hooked on approximately 40 things.

The Mood Board Focus...

The mood board above is a compilation of items that caught my eye online and in the stores. The best part of this mood board, however, is the top left picture. As you can see from the before pictures, these are not the colors of the room... yet. Have you heard of the Sherwin Williams ColorSnap Visualizer? I know most of the big named paint brands have something like this, but since I use Sherwin Williams paint, this was perfect for me!! You get to try out the colors before you buy and paint! I had so much fun playing around with this desktop studio. You have to try it. I made an account to be able to save my images, but once you've done that, load the visualizer, click "paint a scene," and choose upload your own photo. The program is simple to use and makes it easy to select the space, too. I preferred using the "define your area" tool because the room was broken up so much. Love, love, love!

As you can tell from my mood board, I'm looking to keep it rustic by adding some wood elements, but also keep it elegant and serene with the chair and lamps. My hope is to take the existing closet door and turn it into a sliding barn door. It's the only place in the whole house that has the room and wall space to do this, so I'm hoping we can figure it out.

This is just the beginning! Hopefully many of my ideas come to fruition. My timeline for this project to be completely done is before summer is over (for me that is August 8th). I'll keep you posted as I complete the projects. What do you think? Any suggestions before I get going? 

Love this idea, but not ready to start a similar project yet? Pin it for later using the photo below. 

Who doesn't love navy and teal together? I'm just starting my guest room makeover and these are my inspiration pieces!

With love,
